, primarily in texas and louisiana. and the monument behind me is a monument to the soldiers of the 62nd and 65th united states colored infantry. in fact, in january of 1866, the war was over, the soldiers of the 62nd were about to be mustered out at fort mcintosh, texas, and began talking around a campfire, how can we pass this legacy of learning onto the freed men back in missouri? and they began to talk about raising money. they pledged money. they gave money. and it was an extraordinary sacrifice. some of these soldiers, privates in the united states colored infantry, were earning as little as a $113 a year. some of them gave $100, almost a year's wages, to start this institute. they gave their money and their pledges to a second lieutenant, named richard baxter foster, who was a congregationalist minister educated at dartmouth. i don't know he'd ever been in missouri. in the summer of 1866 when it began to appear that lincoln institute might be established in jefferson city, a local newspaper ran an editorial opposing that move and expressed the fear that if jefferson city became th

among the most formative of his life. >> my first job after college was as a teacher in texas in a small mexican-american school. few of them could speak english, and i couldn't speak much spanish. my students were poor, and they often came to class without breakfast, hungry. and they knew even in their youth the pain of prejudice. they never seemed to know why people disliked hem. i ended up wishing there was more i could do. i saw it in their eyes. i often walked home late in the afternoon after the classes were finished wishing there was more that i could do. but all i knew was to teach them the little that i knew. hoping that it might help them against the hardships that lay ahead. and somehow you never forget what poverty and hatred can do when you see its scars on the hopeful face of a young child. i never thought then in 1928 that i would be standing here in 1965. it never even occurred to me in my fondest dreams that i might have the chance to help the sons and daughters of those students, and to help people like them all over this country. but now i do have that chance. and i wi
